For Fans

Support Your Favorite Runner

Philadelphia is well-known for having some of the most avidly devoted sports fans in the world. Our boundless enthusiasm extends to the GORE-TEX® Philadelphia Marathon, as well. Each year, thousands of Philadelphians gather along the route at designated Cheer Zones to show their support to all of the runners.

In addition, monitoring technology allows spectators to keep track of family members' and friends' times throughout the race. The times are recorded every five miles and sent to family members' cell phones.
